New Fowler Bag


I just finished up this bag for a friend of mine who just received his new Hudson Valley Fowler.
  The bag is Kidney shape, (7"w x 6"d) made of veg, tanned leather, hand sewn. There are no inside pockets the back side of the flap is lined with a coarse linen and the edge has been wiped stitched so there is no fraying. A knife and sheath was added to the back of the bag.
